Men’s guidelines to end their girlfriends Valentine’s Day in seventh heaven



No more than two weeks before Saint Valentine’s Day. Some men already have plans how to make that day unforgettable and special (at least for them) and also there were some who until now clueless of how are they going to celebrate this so-called lover’s day (because people usually celebrate it with their partner) with their girlfriends. Just in case, you’re one of those men who haven’t planned anything yet this guidelines to wrap-up her Valentine’s will, I think, help you figure out what would be the perfect date or To-do for your girlfriend consider the coming Valentine’s day UNFORGETTABLE.


So here it goes.


First of all, we both know there are different types of women in this world: the chic, the geeky-woman, the one-of the-boys, the conservative type…just to name a few. If you’re following my site, you are probably familiar with my blog “What other people think on a boyish chic?” from there, I mention the types of women not to mention the blog really focus only to what are those boyish chic. Who are they, what they do and what they feel towards people who bad-mouthed them due to misinterpretations.


  •  Walking, strolling on a park enjoying the beautiful and captivating scenery of nature around you would be the perfect Valentine’s date for your nature-lover girlfriend. Simply because this type of women appreciate the beauty of her surroundings just as how she appreciates your presence. If you’re going to ask me between day and night of roaming around the park, I prefer during the night not only because I am not used to bunch of people but also because I do not like the brightness of sun.

  • Watch all the hot and trending showing movies in cinemas talk about Fifty shades Darker, everybody’s waiting for that controversial movie and surely you’re movie enthusiast girlfriend will enjoy it, knows all the movies to watch on that day and if you’re lucky, she’ll be the one to choose it for you and you’ll never have to worry choosing which of them she’ll like.

Want some suggestions? John Wick, The Space Between Us, Havenhurst, The Lego Batman, The Great Wall…


  • A day of food-trip. Oh yes! Food! , says your foodie girlfriend. It is not that she’s a glutton maybe she just adores food that much. Obviously, a date with all the food that you’ve been longing to taste around you is the best Valentine’s date ever for a food-lover lady. Surely you won’t be surprise if you get yourself broke just for a day. It’s good to have back-ups, right?


  • Valentine’s Day filled with extreme adventures is what your fearless and outgoing girlfriend would definitely enjoy. Let her try the next levels of zip lines, bungee jumping, sky diving or maybe go hiking as well, end your date night pampering yourselves on a spa to relax.  Why not try the wine bath at Aire Ancient Baths in New York City (I just saw this featured on Insider travel)

  • A stroll to book museums bounded by collections of classics and modern books, miniatures and exhibits matches your geek and artistic girlfriend who appreciates arts and literature of all ages. It doesn’t matter if you do not feel the same (because I could sense a little violent reaction from men out there) by just keeping yourself occupied through exploring the place, checking out the pieces would surely eliminate your mind from being uninterested to the place. Look at your girl; if she enjoys it, aren’t you supposed to feel the same? Don’t forget to buy her a new book before the date ends!


  • Stay-cation: movie marathon, games enjoying your Xbox or Playstation, eating whatever you both feels to buy, a simple and gamer girlfriend will surely mark the coming Valentine’s day fun and already special most especially if you let her win in all the games that you’re going to play. (Silly.) But seriously, gamers love to play all the games it doesn’t even matter if it decades old if it is still fun to play, they will play it. So if you wanted to make your girl exuberant and glad make sure to buy a new game earlier by now, you never know how much it’ll surprise her especially if you get to buy those that would squeeze her enthusiasm so much.


And lastly,

  • A collection of new make-up kits: lippies, the limited edition mascara or whatsoever, the widespread black mask that could remove her white heads… etc. will absolutely make your beauty-conscious girlfriend’s heart leaps. She takes care of her looks very much that she always wanted to look good in front of you. So when the time that you’ll buy her those that I’ve mentioned, she will probably thinks you appreciate her effort for that and I surely think you guys really do.


There you go the guidelines in making your girl perfectly fine this coming Valentine’s Day. I hope you get to take ideas from it if not, then you’re completely in trouble because YOU ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME TO PREPARE!

I always love this quotation saying that once a person loves you, all the imperfections of him/her will all become beautiful. At the end of day, no matter how much time you consumed or the efforts that you exerts just to make that day special, little or not, your girl will surely appreciate it because it’s you who made it. I’m pretty sure she’ll do the same effort to make you happy on that day. Just appreciate her as well.


Good luck!




During Christmas season, that time when people shop on the critical point of time, when the “SALE ITEMS” were about to be off and when you got stress due to being clueless of what to buy is a Christmas rush. Now, if this event just happened because it is nearly Valentine’s Day, that’s the title itself.

A week before the Valentine’s Day to come yet you’re still wondering what to buy or what to give to your dear loved ones or you still really have nothing with you. Reasons may vary. You might be busy and no time to work on that or you might have nothing to spend. Either of the two, still as a partner, you wanted to give a gift that is of course;

You want it to buy in an expensive store because sometimes the people around your bae judge you by what your presents are. They do not believe that there is no such thing in love. So you know you are just avoiding the chatterboxes. But still, you have to remember if you are into expensive gifts, you must make sure that your gift will remind him of you. It is your choice to decide what it is.


Big word. Another holiday has passed and you just spent most of your money. Now, what to do?


Being in this kind of situation makes you want to just recycle things at home to create something special for your bae (letters, scrapbook, etc…) which is not bad. In fact, SOME guys (caps on for some… guys prefer things than letters. Just in my opinion) appreciate love letters because of the effort being exerted in the gift; the decorations and the sweet content as well.


When you read the word MEMORABLE, I’m pretty sure you think of albums, compilation of all the pictures of both of you or yes, the so-called “Scrapbook”. Why are scrapbooks memorable? Actually, it’s not just memorable.


It is totally sweet because your bae will get to remember all the memories that you shared, stolen shots that he look unknown due to dopiness, your anniversary and birthday celebration, how he looked like when he got icing all over his face and the fact that your bae have a girlfriend to keep and that is no other than YOU.



Are you going to buy gifts that your bae do not like? Of course, not! It is very important that whatever it is that you’re going to buy will surely like by your bae. It doesn’t matter if it would cost you too much as long as you catch that bright smile of him, it is fine. Always be with him. Pointing out at a certain thing, checking out random items might be a hint. He might give you a clue right away without a word. And the worse, you didn’t recognize a thing. (Kidding..)


Just to give an idea, if I was your girlfriend and vice versa, I would appreciate whatever it is that you will give. A love letter, a sweet scrapbook, gadgets or what… That’s fine. Love is priceless. We all know that. But the fact that you remember the one you love, that’s the big point.


So what I’m trying to say is that money is not an issue. The cost of the gift is nothing if you do not put love in it. A simple hugs and kisses will do and will surely make your partner’s Valentine’s Day special. Who knows what might happen? A hugs and kisses in return?


Let us spread the love and cherish the moment given to all the lovers around the world.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you, in advance.
